Kings Chair Sunrise Hike: Halloween Edition

Sunday, October 13

Oak Mountain State Park is graciously allowing us permission to enter the park a little bit early (530-545am) which hopefully will allow us to catch a beautiful sunrise at King’s Chair. **COSTUMES HIGHLY ENCOURAGED** **please use FRONT gate near the golf course to enter. Then back gate will NOT be open** Sunrise Hike/Run Details: • Blue Trail out to Kings Chair for the sunrise @ 6:52am (4 mile roundtrip) What to Bring: • HEADLAMP – it will be dark at 6am • Friends – bring along someone that has never been out to KC or out for a sunrise!! • Costume!! I will be dressed up regardless of anyone else's participation!

According to the ancient ones, the sun shall rise around 6:50am on October 13th. The plan is to gather at North Trail Head parking lot and start the run/hike at 6:00am. We will be following the Blue Trail approximately 2 miles to King’s Chair. The route is simple and straight forward but I will post directions and will have flags marking the route for anyone that has never been to the overlook. An early start and the short distance will give runners and hikers of all levels the opportunity to be settled on the cliff side waiting for the sun to break the horizon. We will follow the same route back to the North Trail Head parking lot. The "Oak Mt Wheelers" will be hosting a post hike/run BREAKFAST in the North Trail Head parking lot!
